Some other good group hug cards are Jace Beleren , Victory Chimes , Minds Aglow and Death by Dragons .

More pillowfort style cards; Web of Inertia , Smoke and Mystic Barrier

The vow cycle; Vow of Lightning , Vow of Duty , etc are great for incentivizing people to attack and attack someone other than you.

I built my Thantis deck in much the same way! it's hella fun.

MVPs in my build include: Hunted Troll , Hunted Dragon , Hunted Horror , Death by Dragons , and my very favorite, eternally overlooked and misunderstood cards: Tombstone Stairwell and Varchild's War-Riders .

Beast Within is just about the best removal spell around for this deck.

I ended up cutting the Vows from my deck, I kinda didn't care whether or not people attacked me. Hissing Miasma and Circle of Fire style effects similarly disappointed me. I kept Marchesa's 'cause it draws me cards. Also, if you find yourself wanting to draw more cards, consider Deathreap Ritual .

Other fun stuff: Plague of Vermin , Tempt with Vengeance , and Oath of Druids .

Magmastorm haha yeah, but nevertheless thank you very much for your upvote and suggestion. In multiplayer commander Death by Dragons must be insane with Karrthus!

Have you considered playing Death by Dragons? It curves nicely into Karrthus, netting you all the surviving dragons you gave to other players and guaranteeing a 5/5 at the very least. If you have enough mana, you can even do both in the same turn, creating a 5/5 with flying and haste for each opponent you have!

for politics, both Tempt with Vengeance and Death by Dragons are amusing.

Also, Mardu is , Jund is .

I mean, if you're wanting to go an enchantress route that is one thing, but if you want to single one person out of a game with all of your curses, then why not run Death by Dragons for politics?

A very long time ago, I crafted a Sedris splinter twin list because I was a fan of both twin and grixis control in modern, particularly how grixis would fuel it's yard and use it for nefarious deeds. The list began as a simple reanimator list with twin in it and a lot of graveyard interactions, but I quickly found out that going for the twin combo was just the right thing to do almost always. I quickly went all in on the plan.

Maybe a year later, I saw people had begun playing almost exactly the same list in cEDH. It's amazing how several people all independently came to play that deck. These days, the strategy is headed by Kess instead and is quite great. I maintain that I totally did it before it became mainstream and I'm legit a cool dude because of it. Hipster to the max.

Of course the above is a super spikey list and seeing someoen reanimate kiki jiki for the 4th game in a row is definitely not something most people would laugh about.

As for your real question, I have this dumb Nicol Bolas list on my profile that is a weird mix of politics, group hug, and control. The list aims to use cards like Hunted Horror, Death by Dragons, Humble Defector, etc. to help anyone other than the player currently doing the best. It's basically this terrifying elder dragon trying his very best to play politics, but being the dragon that he is, he fails miserably.

I even made this pic to commemorate the deck Show
